See How the Fleabags Designers Fill Their Clutches

BY alisha prakash 07/29/2013

Just how useful are the canvas-and-leather clutches that Shira Entis and Alex Bell make for their line Fleabags? So handy that the girls have to search for excuses not to carry them. As a result, they have both gotten really good at stocking ‘em with their running-around-town essentials. Get the scoop below.



The Things Alex Carries:

120 fleabags
"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."
of Fleabags


+ “I took a girls’ trip to Austin this spring, and this keychain was a memento.”

+ “My friend Tiasha bought me Aesop hand cream for Christmas, and I am addicted.”

+ “I always lose headphones. These are hand-me-downs, but I don’t like the ear grips and desperately need a new set.”

+ “My mom always used a beautiful, black leather checkbook holder, but I never thought I realized that stage of maturity to carry something like that myself—until Shira ingeniously sewed this one in our office from scrap leather. I’m never going back!”

+ “My Bike Share key—I joined, and I love it. Although I’m planning to love it more in the fall when each ride doesn’t involve planning a change of clothes because it’s so hot.”

+ “The sunglasses are Thierry Lasry—Shira and I met him at a trade show, and we’re obsessed with his sunglasses!”



The Things Shira Carries:

+ “I am over the moon about Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. The lip stain lasts for hours, and it has a great matte finish.”

+ “Alex can attest that I get into a terrible mood when my blood sugar is low. I have been mildly hypoglycemic for years, and I have learned the hard way to keep small candies on hand for emergencies.”

+ “I constantly see things that inspire me, so I keep a small sketchbook and pen from Muji. I love how thin and inky their pens are.”

+ “I bought these vintage Krizia sunglasses on Etsy, which has become my favorite place for vintage shopping. I wear them all the time.”

+ “Lots of gum. My dad buys me boxes of Orbit from Costco in Massachusetts and sends them to me.”

+ “My vintage cigarette holder from a flea market in Chelsea that I use as my business-card carrier.”

+ “A travel-size Lift Lab moisturizer. It’s my dad’s skincare company, based on his biotech business, and it is amazing for dryness on the face or the hands.”
